Wow, those sure are mysterious silhouettes that in no way resemble anyone we've glimpsed in voting incentives or april fools pages before

OOOOoooookay, so if you didn't check in earlier Friday to see the effects all over EVERYTHING, here's the deal: I've been using Photobucket as the host for pretty much all images other than the actual comics pages for a looooong time... until this week when they decided to stop letting free accounts link those images to other sites. So, now I finally have to actually do what I've been threatening to do for MONTHS now and actually move all the various buttons and banners and other stuff on these pages to new hosts. Obviously, I've already taken care of everything on the main page, but reloading and copy/pasting everything of all the side pages will take a little time. Sorry to anybody who really, desperately wanted to look at the character profiles this afternoon.

Speaking of moving things, though, I could really use some reader feedback regarding the Voting Incentives because I'm trying something new today. Rather than loading the new incentive to some outside host, I just went ahead and posted it in the Incentive/Patreon Gallery. The page is set to not go public for several weeks, but I THINK I can still link Top WebComics to the specific image itself. At least, that's what I tried today. Can everybody see it? I hope so, cos if this works, it'll make keeping the Gallery updated MUCH easier than it has been up 'til now.

The voting incentive shows up fine for me. And Stilez looks totally rocking!

As to the comic... I really hope Electrabears are electric somehow and not at all connected to the myth and/or complex of Electra.

Electrobears is the preferred spelling
As long as the hovertext assures me that those mysterious silhouettes resemble no previously seen unknown characters, I will certainly believe it. I trust you, hovertext. I wonder what they really look like?

Vote incentive: Stilez before she met Tax - she has destroyed all her enemies, is ruler of all she surveys, and has everything she could ever want (more guns!), but for some reason she is still not happy, as if there is something...missing...from her life...(cue melancholy music)

Edit: upon looking back at the previous strip's comments, it appears Darius had essentially the same thought. Disclaimer: I didn't read it until after I wrote mine. :)

It's interesting to me that nobody finds it odd that Stilez would bother actually putting on a complicated suit of armor.

Ed8, July 8th, 2017, 7:06 pm

Or maybe a wizard did it
Stilez, while walking through some military complex she was in the process of destroying, probably passed through one of those futuristic machines that in a couple seconds assembles a suit of complicated armor around you without you actively having to do anything. Then she smashed the machine, of course, because she wasn't expecting it to put armor on her, but she never bothered to take off the armor, either because she liked it or because she got distracted by something shiny.

That cat
Regarding the fact that Stilez has, yet again, taken over the comments section despite not being in the strip: I don't recall offhand if there were any Stilez incentives on the TWC like-it-or-don't contest thing, but I really think you should have gone with 100% Stilez-based pics for that. You know Catgirls are pure clickbait gold!

There's only one right now (that red/yellow closeup) but you're right, I DO seem to recall that one doing better than several of the others. And funnily enough, I AM toying with putting a colored version of the current Incentive in there when I change the image lineup next month... assume I actually have time to DO a colored version by then.
